Gold foils of Pyrgi, VI century BC. National Etruscan Museum of “Villa Giulia”, Rome, Italy. 

These foils are a valuable testimony of the alliance between the Etruscans and Carthaginians in the era of expansion of Carthage in the Mediterranean. 

Two foils are written in the Etruscan language, one in the language of the Phoenicians: there is a dedication of a place sacred to the goddess “Astarte”, a goddess of the religion of the Phoenicians.

Pyrgi is the Latin name of the city founded by the Etruscans near the “Mountains of Tolfa”, in the region of “Lazio” , Italy.
